Daisy | 1074 comments while i understand your delma I have to point out that if you don't have your story set up just for that thing to happen its stupid. I've read multiple stories where they bring back a character from the dead and I HATED it. It actually ruined my opinion of a whole four book series one time!there are certain situations that involve a TON of different factors and elements of when why and how that would be okay.My point is that its hard to bring a character back to life whithout ruining the book

Ok. i'm just jumping in randomly- i have no idea what you story is or anything...

but a wise author (i think it was patrick ness- can't remember, i've seen and met quite a few authors) once told us to kill off you characters as a last resource. If there really is no other way- do it. But only if there's NO OTHER WAY!!!

Why would you kill off your faviourite character?
